The Citizens of Humanity Spring Summer 2017 collection actually contains two lines. One is what they refer to as the main line, and the other is their capsule vintage collection, shown here. And it is one of my favorite collection for this spring and summer.
Each season, Citizens of Humanity finds a new decade and new kind of artisanship to tell the story of the new collection.
Citizens of Humanity’s Founder, Jerome Dahan, and Women’s Creative Director, Catherine Ryu, pay homage to the 80’s and 90’s with the emergence of heavier weight, rigid denim for Spring 2017. The designers drew inspiration from classic vintage high-waisted silhouettes as well as the return of the non-stretch, 100% cotton denim, prevalent during these influential fashion eras.
True vintage looks from the 80’s & 90’s are back with a focus on rigid fabrications with an authentic orange-peel character in a variety of light stone washes. New washes range from chalky whites, soft grey, icy blues, complimented with accents of deep indigo.
You can check out their amazing vintage collection here. My very favorite jean of this vintage collection is the Dree, which is high rise crop. The fit is pretty snug, which makes them almost a skinny, and the distressing and fading have such an authentic worn in and “much loved old pair of jeans” feel, that is absolutely a-maze.
